# Research Training Group (RTG)

Our department is proud to have received a Research Training Group (RTG) award from the NSF starting in Summer 2013 and running through Summer 2020. This award supports our work in algebraic geometry and related fields, including number theory, complex dynamics, model theory and logic.

### Research and learning opportunities for:

- High school students
- Undergraduate students. In the Summer of 2016, we held a Commutative Algebra REU at UIC.
- Graduate students. You can find a list of current and former graduate students here.
- Postdocs. You can find a list of current and former postdocs here.
